Flinders House


Nestled within an existing garden on the Mornington Peninsula, Flinders House unites Modernism with the contemporary. The original house was built in the 1980s and first renovated in 2002. The clients (one a retired architect) were eager to spend more time in their holiday home, with the capacity to host friends and family. As return clients, working again with Fido Projects & Fooman Architects, the team embarked on the highly collaborative work of renovating once more.

“The fastidious and demanding detail involved in the building, crafted with care by builders up to the task, provide depth to a home that initially presents as simple. The junctions were complex to achieve but help to create a home that is intended to feel relaxed, grounded and at ease.”
